Lookie what I found...

I went through three boxes last week myself and found 35 wheats, a decent haul, usually I average about 10 per box. My earlies were a 1924 and a 1930, the remaining were 1940 on up to 1958. One of the most fascinating was a 1973 Barbados cent, first time I have ever gotten an older trident cent from coin searching. Just a bit over 30% of the $75 worth of cents was pre-1982 bronze and joined the rest of the herd in retirement. So far I have about 400lbs of copper cents.

 

Whilst I was adding the wheats in, I was going through the accumulation of finds, they date as far back as two 1909's, including a VDB from Philly - I got both of them last year, quite a few from the teens and a lot more from the 1920's on up.

 

It is a cheap pursuit, but the thrill of finding something makes it worth it. I know others have found Indian cents and hope sometime I will find one out in the wild.

Thanx Guy's,you make me feel all proud!!!! ;) Feel like I got hair on my chest now! :yes: Did i just say that? Outloud?

Oh Gosh yes,I love finding wheat's and S' mm.......I still have every wheat and every S I ever found,can't let go of the S' for some silly reason :ninja: No clue why!

Oh and too I found 2 canadian's in the same roll...odd but they are identical,must be some kinda bicentennial maybe,they have 1867-1992 on them?? .....I've got plenty canadian's now,3 or 4 that don't even look circulated from 60's I think to 2003's...I think....LoL

I know exactly what you mean scottis cause it's better than Christmas to me.LoL.Because being born on new year's day,I "ALWAY'S" had to save one present for my birthday......traumatic to a kid...ROFL!

OMG,I'd die if I pulled out a 1909 i guess,Ain't made it that far yet! ;)

Literally I have to believe I have gone through about 120 boxes since 2007. I would go through more, but lately it has gotten to be a bit of a pain to get rid of the Zincolns that I reject.

 

I also have several dozen errors, mostly clips or off centre strikes, hundreds of earlier Canadian cents, ie George VI and early EII coins. Sometime I want to do a presentation on here about all my finds. I keep them all sorted out in different rolls depending on what they are. The regular bronze Lincolns go into large plastic jugs.

 

I have deals with several of my banks tellers, they get cents, older FRN's large sized dollar coins, pre-1970 halves etc, and they get gift cards for lunch etc.

Oh Wow..That's a neat setup! I've only been doing it for about a yr now..maybe a little longer but not much,I still have alot to learn,But time is what I have the most of the past few years,More time than money believe me.......Ya know my husband was a freak for wheat's and old pennie's but I basically just stared and shook my head if he stopped to pick one up and even rolled an eye or 2 :ninja: He would be so shocked ;);):yes: to see me in it now.he was never a collector but if he saw a penny he'd stop traffic to grab it and put in his little mug which now belong's to our Grandson Dakota!

 

BTW

I have one extra nice bank teller and 2 Grouchy one's!

You can ask these around here and they act like you've asked them to hide a body for ya! and Thank God for coinstar!

But i have gotten Dakota into it as bad as Myself..he got off his bus a while back and saw a penny "in the ditch".It's a 55 wheat but it is so black and tarnished you can't tell alot about it.but eye's like a hawk,He alway's check's his money!!!!!

But I guess when you think about it, he'll have alot of girl's chasing him,afterall a coin collector is never broke! ;) Well that's what i like to tell him.inspiration..ROFL!

My best "street find" was just outside Mission San Jose in California, near the old Mission church, I found a 1926-S peaking out from the dirt. Last year over at my old house I found a 1917 cent out by an old elm tree that has been there for a very long time. In fact I found a cluster of coins there mostly from the 1940s and 1950's and a few into the mid 1990's around that tree. No silver so far.

Wow,My Grandson has 1917 Wheat...I think the oldest i have is a 19!

Shoot I forget what I do have sometimes,LoL So it's always a 2nd surprise.....My mind has just about left me.LoL

I'll go through mine on occasion if I see them in a post and I'm like.OMG i forgot that one....I have 2 wheat's that have no dates.......Dunno if it's trial strikes maybe or grease or something but their surface is like a glassy feel? and one that say's In God we RUST! You can barely see the T with a naked eye but on the scanner or magnification it shows better!

One of them has what look's like a 1 turned on its side though.... :ninja:
